Topic: Girls And ROCK'N'ROLL

Yeah I admit I like girls bands way much more than guys ones so I decided to create a thread to talk about the various Girl fronted or all girls bands. You'll probably make me discover new ones even if I know a lot of them as my iTunes Library is about 3/4 of them. Or more.

I'll start with my favorite of them all which is also the girl I worship and idolize, miss kick ass herself, the amazing JOAN JETT. She's put girls into Rock'N'Roll a whole lot as in this time there weren't very much around. Girls that play Rock have a lot to thank her for. smile

Then of course, the girl of my dreams which was part of the great Distillers. Miss Brody Dalle.

Then of course we have Blondie which also helped a lot to put women into Rock.

Then there's the girls of Civet which started all girl but then got 2 guys in. The vocal has a very cool name, Liza Graves. That is very nice. big_smile

Then on the Metal side there's these girls from Ontario which are to me the best Metal band EVER, the cool girls of Kittie. They kick so much asses it's nuts.

Then from the same place is my sweet Avril Lavigne which I've always loved and saw a few times live. Damn she Rocks it's crazy.

And sooo much more.

Girls to me are a very important part of Rock. Not only because their voices are way more musical than guys but also and especially because they're more cute and sexy as guys. Of course. lol

I find it bad that lots of them still have trouble getting shows just because it's a man's world, piss me off. I have friends in Montreal called The Horny Bitches that still have shows closed to them just because they're girls and it's crazy really.

By the way, they are very cool and kick ass too. Here's an example:

Horny Bitches-Chicks With Dicks

Show me yours... big_smile

Re: Girls And ROCK'N'ROLL

No need to say anything more about the incredibly gorgeous Queen of Goth. Always loved Evanescence. Saw them once and I wish I'd see 'em more. What a show they put on, very cool.

Re: Girls And ROCK'N'ROLL

Oh yes 2 great bands.

Girlschool to me are the female Motorhead. lol

Lee Aaron is wild too. Was one of the first shows I've seen, she was opening for Motley Crue. Unforgetable...

Re: Girls And ROCK'N'ROLL

I tend to prefer male fronted bands, but one of my favorites is Arkona.

They're a female fronted Russian Folk metal band.

I like the Genitorturers as well, and Krypteria is another female fronted band I like.

None of these three are all girl bands though, thy just have female vocalists.

Re: Girls And ROCK'N'ROLL

I can't beleive no one's mentionned Karen O from the Yeah yeah yeahs......I saw them play a couple of times during the Fever to tell tour.  had a boner the whole show...
